Shappi Khorsandi: Mistress and Misfit

Shappi Khorsandi: Mistress and Misfit

Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2017

Starring: Shappi Khorsandi

Shappi presents England's unsung heroine. For too many years she has been known as just Nelson's mistress, a bit of a harlot (you get one job in a brothel and bang goes your reputation). Women's lib wasn't a thing in Georgian times: Emma moved mountains to haul herself from scullery maid to Lady Hamilton. Yes, she occasionally danced naked on tables to get ahead in life, but who hasn't? As a fellow naked dancer on tables, Shappi is inspired by Emma, although she never wants hair big enough to house mice in.
